A 68-year-old Richland man died Wednesday in a collision on Highway 12 about a mile east of Touchet.
Gary L. Troyer died at the scene of the 1:45 p.m. wreck, the Washington State Patrol reported.
He was driving a 2014 Ford Escape west on the highway when his vehicle crossed the center line and struck the trailer of a 1994 Kenworth log truck, the patrol reported. The truck’s driver, Arie L. Rysdam, 69, of Elgin, Ore., wasn’t hurt.
The wreck closed Highway 12 for several hours.
